Was this the outfit my great grandfather wore back when he was freighting with Buffalo Bill Cody in Kansas?

According to my grandfather, after his dad wore these buckskins for years, he decided they should be cleaned. He hired a Native American woman  who said she was experienced in cleaning leather.  They were returned shrunken and ruined.
